Business Organization and Qualifications

In 1987, Landmark Archaeological & Environmental Services was formed to provide archaeological, geological, and environmental services to government and private industry. In 1994, the business was expanded into our first full service office and lab facility in Sheridan, Indiana; and was further expanded in 2000 with a second regional laboratory and office in Columbia, Kentucky.

Landmark personnel are experienced in meeting our client's needs for all phases of compliance issues, including Phase I, II, III investigations, Section 106, FERC, ARPA, and National Register eligibility statements. In addition, Landmark staff have completed National Register of Historic Places (NHRP) nominations, NRHP District nominations, and have experience with National Historic Landmark nomination protocol.

Landmark principal investigators have experience in Prehistoric Archaeology, Historic Archaeology, Osteology, Cultural Resource Management, and Environmental Geology. Landmark has engaged in projects of many sizes, from small, less than one acre bridge replacement surveys, to 180 mile waterline surveys and interstate roadway environmental studies encompassing over 1200 square miles. Landmark retains a core staff, but can hire as many field technicians and supervisors as needed to complete your project in a timely manner.
